Royal Air Maroc and Israel’s El Al have signed a cooperation agreement that will allow the two airlines to enhance their relationship by exploring potential codeshare services
CEO of Royal Air Maroc, Hamid Addou signed the agreement with El Al CEO Avigal Soreqhe on the sidelines of the 77th General Assembly of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in Boston
“This agreement comes in a context where Royal Air Maroc and El Al intend to operate air transport services between the two countries through their respective hubs, namely the Mohammed V airport in Casablanca and the Ben Gurion international airport in Tel Aviv,” Royal Air Maroc said.
In December 2020, Morocco, the United States and Israel signed a joint declaration to re-establish diplomatic relations between Morocco and Israel. The declaration also authorised the re-establishment of direct air connectivity between the two states and laid the foundations for a stronger bilateral air transport relationship.
